    And on the other note. Figured out the problem with the stripping nuts for the inlet cam gear. Haynes manual states stage 1 - 5 Nm and then stage 2 - 22 Nm.
    Well that may be right for the exhaust and the pins but not the nuts. They are 10 Nm even though the Haynes Manual says nuts/bolts and them torque settings.

    and mainly will be building the car for drift.
    Get a HX35 turbo and you should be golden for drifting.
    Maybe not 500hp but it should be good for drifting.

    Yea, I was looking at them cos I would like a little smaller turbo so it would spool faster. But was wondering about the HX40. Wouldnt I be able to get more tourqe with the 40 instead of 35?

    By the way, was I talking to you on DW about the vems?

    That´s quite possible

    The Hx40 I´d go for if you are more interested in street performance although I don´t have hard data yet on the spool time of a HX40 but it´s only 3mm larger then a 35 and the hx35 is easily spooled on a M20 for drifting.

    Ah, I see now I was wanting the car to be more of a everyday car / mental drifter but I am starting to realise that I would need a second car as it would probably cost me a tenner in petrol just to get down the street once it goe on boost
    Would the HX35 or HX40 fit in the e36 engine bay if I ran a down mounted manifold if you know what I mean hehe

    Yea.

    I just fitted a MASSIVE Borg Warner S366 the other day to my E36 in the bottom front mount as you mention and it fits despite it´s insane size as i plan on making manifolds specifically for the HX35 and 40 for RHD E36´s this summer.

    Fuel mileage is almost always how you drive the car. so you can only have yourself to blame

    Yea, I was thinking that a reasonable size turbo should fit. And I would like it to be sitting nice and hidden although it wont be obvious at all that the car is turbo'd
    How much you think you would be pricing the manifolds?

    And very very true! I just try and make excuses about my fuel consumption just to hide the fact that the growl of the engine tends to make my right foot become filled with lead
